Courtesy raising funds
HOLLIDAYSBURG — Courtesy Lincoln is bringing Lincoln’s Driven to Give program to Hollidaysburg community in an effort to raise up to $8,000 for C.W. Longer Elementary School.
For every person who test drives an eligible Lincoln vehicle at Tiger Stadium from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Lincoln will donate $20 to the school. Lincoln will donate another $10 for every participant who takes a second test-drive in a different 2019 Lincoln vehicle. The funds will go towards the sixth grade.
Dealership staff on site will be able to assist with all vehicles and provide additional information about each vehicle available for test-drive.

The new, 10,000-square-foot on-campus facility provides classroom, laboratory and clinical education space to instruct students enrolled in the Health Sciences programs.
The ELC is equipped with several new high-functioning manikins, a clinical skills lab and a simulated apartment for students to practice providing care to patients in the home environment. The hospital-like setting that allows students to work interprofessionally in a way that simulates the collaborative process of caring for a patient.
The $4 million project was funded through a $1 million state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant, a $2 million anonymous donation and $1 million in gifts from alumni and friends. A recent $2.5 million anonymous donation will usher the project into its next phase, which will include renovation of Sullivan Hall.
